      Dean College Basketball Teams Split in District Tournament


      The Dean College men’s basketball team defeated Monroe Community College on Saturday, 99-89, to capture their first NJCAA District 2 Championship.  They now advance to the NJCAA National Tournament for the first time and will travel to Danville, Illinois next week to compete for a national title.  The sixteen team tournament begins on Tuesday, March 18, 2014 and the championship game concludes on Saturday, March 22, 2014.

      Dean built a 55-36 lead at halftime on the hot shooting of Antonio Pires (Carver, MA), who scored 12 points, all from behind the 3-point arc.  Joe Clarke (New Rochelle, NY) led all Dean scorers with 19 points, including going 11-12 from the foul line.  Jamal Reuben (Brockton, MA) had key baskets down the stretch with 17 points, including 3 long range 3-pointers, and also played excellent defense with 4 steals.  Overall, Dean had five players in double figures and raised their season record to 21-3 heading into the nationals.  For additional information about the NJCAA National Tournament, please visit

      The women lost a tough game to Essex County College (Newark, NJ), 63-56, as a four point halftime lead evaporated at the ten-minute mark of the second half and the Bulldogs were forced to play catch up the rest of the way.  Dean’s second leading scorer, Vanessa Sylvain (Brockton, MA), went down early in the second half with a game ending ankle injury and starting point guard Victoria Nguyen (Woburn, MA) was in foul trouble all game.  Dean only scored 23 points in the second half without two key cogs to their offense.  The Lady Bulldogs finished one of their best seasons at 17-6 and their first Region XXI title since 2002.
